Supernumerary teeth may present in various forms and in any region of the mandible or maxilla, but have a predisposition for the anterior maxilla. Each one may cause a variety of complications in the developing dentition. This article reviews the prevalence, clinical features, complications, diagnosis and management of supernumerary teeth along with five case reports to illustrate some possible presentations in the anterior maxilla. This paper is an attempt to emphasize the importance of recognizing signs suggesting the presence of supernumerary teeth, particularly aberrations in the eruptive pattern, and perform the relevant investigations. On diagnosis, each case should be managed appropriately in order to minimize complications to the developing dentition.
